“⋒ If you're visiting Aotearoa (NZ) and want to see some Kiwi head to Kiwi North where they have Kiwi rehabilitating that you can see. Be sure to check their website and go when they are doing a feeding. ”

“Historic park with the river running through ... feed the ducks or climb to the top of Parahaki or walk through connecting bush tracks to the Whangarei Falls, A H Reed Park (canopy bridge) or back towards the Town Basin via the aquatic centre and enjoy the boardwalk through the mangroves”

“The walk between the Park and the waterfall follows the Hatea River. There are many picnic spots and fresh water swimming holes. This is an easy walk, with some short steep climbs, that is suitable for all ages and it is a popular running track for many locals.”

“Parihaka Reserve provides an abundance of activities to do from BMX cycle tracks, walking tracks, history and lookout. Walking tracks along the Hatea River can lead you to the Town Basin, the Loop and Whangarei Falls.”

“Very beautiful waterfall, either view it from the platforms, or walk all the way from there to town....about 2.5 hours....easy walk. Grab a map from the I-Site office for trail directions (there is a road about half way that you have to follow that is a little confusing)!”
